Defense Technical Information Archive

The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) is the premier repository for research and engineering information for the United States Department of Defense. DTIC's Suite of Services is available to DoD personnel, defense contractors, federal government personnel and contractors and selected academic institutions. The general public can access unclassified, unlimited information, including many full-text downloadable documents, through the public Web site, DTIC Online. DTIC's collections contain over 4 million documents including technical reports, research in progress and Independent Research and Development (IR&D) summaries. DTIC also publishes searchable Congressional budget data shortly after its release from Congress. DTIC acquires approximately 25,000 new documents each year. On June 4, 2004, DTIC became a DoD Field Activity under the management of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, reporting to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD(R&E)). Mr. Christopher Thomas is the Administrator. DTIC's mission statement is "To provide essential, technical research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) information rapidly, accurately and reliably to support our DoD customers' needs."

During July 2007, fields from both the NCEP GFS final analyses and ECMWF model of OW and SF analyses suggests the development of two distinct areas with sub-tropical intrusion from remnants of a decaying baroclinic system in the WNP. This analysis of the formation of Usagi points to sub-tropical intrusion of a strong lower-tropospheric baroclinic system undergoing decay as potential seedlings for typhoon formation in areas of high sea surface temperatures, weak low-level vertical wind shear,...

In this volume the primary intent is to uncover the objective functional relationship between import and export dependencies as they affect the reliability of supply in the past and the future. Until recently, under the aegis of American hegemony, and due to the role the oil multinationals played, both oil exporting and oil importing countries exhibited a sufficiently high degree of dependence on the trade in oil to bring about a symmetry in their reciprocal conditions. The manipulation of oil...

During the desert and tropic climatic laboratory test phases of the F-111D climatic test program, 11.5 hours of test time were accumulated during 11 test runs. Four test runs were selected as being the most representative of aircraft operation in regions with ambient temperatures varying from 70 to 125 degrees F and under varying relative humidities. All available data obtained on these test runs are presented in this document as computer printouts.

This theory states that a leader's behavior is important for good performance as a function of its impact on subordinates' perceptions of paths to goals and the attractiveness of the goals. When leader behavior clarifies these goals or makes them more attractive the satisfaction, performance, and the leader acceptance is expected to increase. The specific relationship between leader behavior and these criteria will depend upon the...

The splicing and termination of underground electrical distribution cable requires that the integrity of cable conductor and insulation be maintained throughout its length. A large number of commercial cable splice and termination kits are available which are claimed to fulfill these requirements. The Civil Engineering Laboratory (CEL) was requested to investigate the suitability of these kits for use at Naval shore facilities. Of special interest were the slip-on cable splice and cable...

This handbook embraces the areas to be considered in the design of pyrotechnic ammunition with emphasis on the engineering aspects of the terminal effects. Associated topics to be considered during the design--such as light, sound, heat, ignition, and ballistic considerations--are covered briefly with the expectation that the reader will use pertinent references in this and the related handbook series for detailed information. Consideration is given not only to design with respect to...

A fully operable laboratory model of the Remote Viewing System was designed and built. The system consists of a TV camera and TV projector both equipped with a non-linear lens, i.e. a lens that matches the human eye acuity function with excellent resolution capability near the optical axis, but greatly reduced resolution capability in the peripheral areas. The camera and projector are slaved together by a digital servo system. An operator can steer the camera and thus the projector by use of a...

Developments in the area of munitions transportation and storage have eliminated the need for sealed metal containers for some weapons systems. This was the case when ADTC/SDM, Eglin AFB FL proposed an open metal crate to replace the CNU-218 container for the CBU-75/B dispenser bomb. The first prototype, developed by Lanson Industries, failed the vibration tests (AFALD Report 76-39). Based upon further evaluation and due to the excellent structural strength of the container a second prototype...
